12 oz can poured into a flute

A- A hazy golden straw color with a three finger white head.

S- Tart, lacto, some wheat, bready malts, underwhelming.

T- Much better than the nose, tart lemon, some wheat and pale malts, touch of funk, some lacto in the finish.

M- Pretty smooth, crisp, light body.

O- Not the best Berliner I have tried, but I am very happy that I was able to pick this up. Nose is fairly weak, but the taste is not.

Scouring the landscape in search for brewery downtime to fit in a brew session for themselves, the name is fitting for these wandering brewers. But finding favor with the northern German style seems right up their alley!

Nomader Weisse treats these Evil Twin brewers well as the lemony-stained body meets the tart lemon and lime character that carries its nose. Nearly mouthwatering to the scent, faint whiffs of grain and sugar give rise to the citrus fruit but doing so with a slight musty and sea-like earthiness.

Once the ale hit the tongue a quick procession goes from playful tartness and subtle bread sweetness to full-on acute sourness midway thorough the taste. Sour grapes, lemon peels, lime zest, crabapples and under-ripened berry all frame the sour palate while those earthen wafts keep on coming- salty brine, musty citrus and clean acidity provokes an effortless finish.

Its palate-stripping sourness refreshes the palate with ease and provides a light body and crisp texture. With a quick echo of wheat bread, the beer dissolves from the mouth with utter ease. It's a masterful taste with powerful sourness that never lingers or fatigues the palate. Perfect for hot summer days. I wish this was one of those.

12oz can with a June 2014 date stamp.
Pours hazy copper-amber with a sizable bubbly head.

Mild aroma even after the head dies down.

Strong tart flavor with a fruitiness dominated by lemon. Bready and yeasty aspects too.

Juicy body. Fine lively carbonation.

O: a bold and very flavorful 4% ABV beer.

Nomader Weisse is the pale yellow color I expect it to be, and just as clouded. The head is pure white, sitting firm at a full finger's height and falling slowly, leaving behind good patching as it does.
This one is tart, showing off the funky sourness all the way through. It's downright puckering, very lemony with a bit of must in the nose that translates to drier grains in the flavor, lots of acidity coming through. It's continuously mouth-watering wh8ile balancing against the acidic dryness. It goes mildly briny in the middle, almost like a Gose, but the sourness is never really cut. The only real issue here is that, in going for such strong sourness and heavy acidity, it takes something away from a style that's intended to display a certain softness as well. Still, well done overall.
The feel is refreshing even with the acidic nature, not harsh to drink at all. The body is a little stronger than the light, soft texture it should display, but not overdone much. It keeps up a good dryness on the palate even with the juiciness.

Served in a snifter from a twelve ounce can.

Light fluffy pale white head forms pretty thick and high over the body but dissipates quickly. Sticky lace remains. Body is cloudy and a lemonade-like. 4.25

Heavily tart, lemony and lactic. Notes of wheat are traceable. 4

First sip reminds me of sushi. Is that soy sauce? Tart lactic notes meet wheat and the result seems kind of rice-like. Lemon is a welcome flavor here, but something about this beer feels like a bento box meal. 3.25

Tart definitely, mouth-puckering even. Body is light and juicy but with a bit of a grainy feel. The brew is lightly carbonated and fairly refreshing. 3.75

Odd with the sushi/rice tastes, which make it just an average brew.

A careful pour allows a 1/2 finger white head with decent retention and lacing. Head sits atop a lemon yellow brew, hazy but not thick.

Really interesting aroma, with a hint of citrus and lemon, some yeast - both musty and sweet - and a strange, almost egg-like quality. Very little malt body in the aroma, just a sense of wheat grains or hay.

Very tart and light brew, with a milkiness to it. Lemon, citric acid up front and very noticeable, with a grass milk-like malt body.

Very thin body, but the tartness does slow you a bit.

Enjoyed this straight, and as such, it's an OK beer. I look forward to trying it with some syrup.

12oz can into Tired Hands stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a .5 finger foamy white head with poor retention. Beer is a clear goldenrod with thin legs and spotty lace with little cling. Average.

Nose is tart and yeasty with a light sprinkle of lemon rind and wheat. Very mellow.

Opens lemon, yeast and wheat. Tart lemon rind with notes of hay in the middle. Yeasty, clean, tart finish and aftertaste. Again, really mellow. Doesn't really taste like much.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly in the mouth and goes down watery with a clean finish and the same aftertaste. Decent.

Very middle-of-the-road. This berliner really doesn't taste like much of anything. Maybe it'd be a good candidate for imparting some fruit?

Grabbed a can at Astoria Bier & Cheese. Poured a hazy gold with no head. It's fruity and tart with an earth bitterness. The fruit tastes like a mix of cherry and banana with lemon squeezed for the sour tang. Overall, a balanced, flavorful, and well-made berlinner.
